Ethiopia: Repi Solid Waste Power Station Generates Power at Full Capacity

Repi's Solid Waste Power Station has resumed full power generation after the maintenance of the power generation turbine was completed on September 9, 2023. The turbine had been out of service for more than a year due to a minor breakdown and a shortage of spare parts.

The Manager of the power plant, Brock Eba, said that they are committed to continuing to generate electricity and burn waste by developing the capacity of the workers and supplementing the supply of spare parts. He also mentioned that the power station is collecting more than 2,500 tons of solid waste from the capital city per day.

The power station, which was built at a cost of Birr 2.6 billion, started generating power on a trial basis in 2019. It has a capacity of generating 50 megawatts of electricity and burning 700 tons of solid waste per day.
